  1. Default Re: Old Silaflex coming unwrapped

    Rip Tide, thanks for the information about the Ace brand spar varnish.

    The rod is a relatively short 4 piece. I'll measure it after work tonight to confirm the length.

    I bought it new in the late 1960's when I was in high school. My sweet heart at the time was the daughter of the owner of a sporting goods store; I got a very good discount.

    As far as it being a nice rod, I like it but I have nothing to compare it to. It's the only fly rod I've ever owned. I fished streams in Colorado when I was in college, but since then it's been in it's tube. Some day I may have to try one of those newfangled carbon rods.

    My wife wanted to go fishing the last time we went camping, so I rigged up an ultralight spinner for her, with a bobber and a worm, and decided to take my fly rod. She was catching pan fish so fast that I only threw the line in the water about a dozen times. "I need another worm".

    After that I decided I needed a floating line that actually floated, so I started googling and ended up finding these forums and joining just couple of weeks ago.

    Sorry for rambling.
    Bill

    Yup, it measures 7' 7 1/4". Sort of an odd size, eh?
